Subject: A bit bland
It's an interesting look back at auto mechanics in the early 1940s, but the film itself isn't exciting.
Subject: A slice of what it was like....
I am currently professional automotive tech, and I find this piece quite interesting. So much has changed in the field, yet the fundamentals are relatively the same. A GOOD mechanic/technician goes through that much training and so much more now. You need to keep your education current if you want to stay sharp, and understand how things change from year to year.

Subject: It Makes This Thump, Thump, Thump Sound Whenever I Accelerate...
Part of the Your Life Work series, this vocational training film presents the exciting career field of auto mechanics and makes it seem dull and requiring lots of education. Good thing most mechanics got into the field through tinkering with cars or we wouldnt have anybody to fix our vehicles. A very ordinary film.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.
Subject: Take this as a warning
This occupational awareness film made for unsuspecting high school students, plows on the seemingly endless education one must go through in order to fix cars. C'mon, PHYSICS? Mathematics? Book-keeping? It's almost as if the film-makers were trying to say to the kids, "Stay In School, we don't want you uneducated runts!" reccomended!
